A box for Anything Goes - lots of them!

I have been decorating quite a few boxes recently, so I thought I would blog one, and enter it for several challenges.

This is an oval box, which I have painted with a dusky purple paint - matchpots are really good for this, and I think this is a Homebase own brand.  The colour in the photo looks nothing like it does in real life.  I have sprayed the top with Crafters Companion glimmer spray in Gold - it is a sort of glittery varnish.  The top has then been decorated with a variety of bits and pieces,  The gold coloured pieces I removed from packet of christmas decorations - one is a lotus leave and the other a nut shell.  I also sprayed these with the glimmer varnish.  I then added some very pretty flowers from Prima.  I have, since taking this photo, added some toning beads.  Will get another photo when the light is better.

I am entering this for the following challlenges:
